WEB EXCLUSIVE: Auston Anderson picks up offers to Navy, Rice
The recruiting of Plano West junior running back Auston Anderson continues to heat up.
Anderson received his first official offer Feb. 6, Signing Day for the Class of 2013, when Northwestern came calling. Add Rice and Navy to that list with the former offering Friday night and the latter Monday afternoon.
The interest in Anderson makes sense.
In his second varsity season, the 5-foot-8, 175-pounder was a first team all-district and all-Collin County selection after rushing for 1,156 yards and 13 touchdowns. Anderson, who also runs track, was the lighting part of the Wolves' multi-tiered rushing attack in 2012 as the team advanced to the regional finals for the first time in program history.
West already has one Class of 2014 commit as linebacker Lance Cottrell is pledged to SMU.
